Booked this based on online reviews. Rooms were recently updated and pretty modern. As another reviewer said, the motel doesn't look like much on the outside, but the rooms are nicely done and had most conveniences you could think of on a beach vacation: safe, hair dryer, fridge, microwave, iron, etc. Pool was a perfect size for our two young kids and although it did close early (7 or so), we decided to swim before dinner, so it worked out OK. Overall, expensive -- like everything else on LBI! -- but worth it.

Good location, recently remodeled. However, the pool closes at 7pm everyday, which I think is totally ridiculous. They even cover it with a tarp so you can't go in. For $150 (and up) per night, I should be able to go swimming at 10pm if I want. Also, they let you smoke at the pool, so you can't swim after 7pm, but some fat pig can blow smoke in your kids faces while they're at the pool when it actually is open. The soda machine would not take our money (coins or dollars) so we couldn't even get a bottle of water. The floor in the room was filthy, I gave my son a bath, and 10 mins later his feet were black. We also found old pieces of candy under the bed, which luckily he didn't put in his mouth. They also advertise for a restaurant & bar, but if you look closer, you will see that it says on the sign, 9 blocks south at another motel. There is NO restaurant/bar/food service. In my opinion, they have some nerve charging $150 and up for a place that offers no food or bar and has a pool that closes before the sun even goes down. I would look elsewhere if I was you.

Room Tip: We stayed on the boulevard side because the pool side is about $50 more. and to top it off, the pool...

I have been coming here for years. The rooms were redone. The price is the best I could find in LBI and it's 2 blocks from the beach. There's a raw and coooked seafood place next door. You can park the car and walk to dinner and to the beach. Ice cream is across the street. All rooms have balconies and small fridges. The pool is not too big, but good for young children. The rooms are clean.My friends came with me for the first time and want to go back.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2010

Was very hesitant at first, but took the plunge, and it was the best decision ever. Very easy check in, room was bigger than I expected, was very clean w/ an updated bathroom. We took the efficiency because of the kids and it was worth every penny (stove top, fridge, micro, toaster, dishes, couch, table w/ chairs, etc.). It faced the pool which was very convenient to watch the kids. And the pool came in very handy, because it rained for a few days, but the kids were able to swim anyway. Oh - and the pool was heated which was a big plus. The location was perfect as well. Many restaurants, WaWa, etc. in walking distance. It was truly and great find and would def. recommend it.
